Raspy Voice When Talking For A Long Time?

Raspy Voice When Talking For A Long Time?

I have had raspy, croaky voice for the last 2 weeks--maybe a relapse? Ive had it before but it went mostly away. Anybody experienced this? Do you guys know any "tips" to help it? I usually drink hot tea and suck on cough drops...maybe any at home speech exercises? I don't know any.

I started this diagnoses with no voice, had to learn to speak again, now I'm left with a raspy and uneven speech.
It's the only symptom leaves me not talking 😥

Sometimes my voice will become raspy, but it has returned back to a normal tone.

If I laugh really hard I will lose my voice, and takes about 5 minutes after I have stopped laughing to come back.

I had the same issue and was diagnosed with spasmodic dysphonia—spasms of the vocal chords. Drinking alcohol helps relax the vocal chords but I don’t recommend it for treatment. I did just get my first Botox injections into my vocal chords. My voice is already better but it will take a week to know full results. I saw an ENT who specializes in voice disorders .

Lachelle
I’m going through it too but I had to have all my ruined teeth pulled/cut out so attribute the raspiness to that
To explain when I broke my knee7 years ago I later tripped over my walker and landed gave first against a metal day bed. Just wanted to clarify that.
